Welcome to the charity masquerade ball homepage!

The ball to raise money for Beaumond House, will take place on Saturday 7th May 2011 in the ballroom at Newark Town Hall.

As some of you may be aware, in June 2010 we organised a successful fundraising BBQ with live music which took place at the Mayze pub on Castlegate and raised over £1,100 for Beaumond House. This was made possible by the kind donations of local businesses that donated food and raffle prizes and of course, the Mayze and local bands.

This year we hope to, at the very least, triple that amount! This can be made possible by the support of the public and businesses in and around Newark.

Tickets will be priced at £20 and will include a drink on arrival, hog roast (vegetarian option available), chocolate fountain, entertainment, and live music.  There will also be the chance to win some great prizes in the raffle (see the 'raffle prizes' page for an updated list) and an auction as well as photographic opportunities.

We are in the process of obtaining sponsorship to cover the costs for the event as we aim for as much of the money as possible raised by ticket sales, to go directly to Beaumond House. If part or all of the costs can be covered by sponsorships, it helps the Ball to raise a higher profit for Beaumond House.

If you, as a company (or a very generous individual!) would be interested in sponsoring the ball (we have various sponsorship packages available) then please visit the sponsorship page or contact us to discuss this.

If you would like to kindly donate a prize for the raffle, please contact us.

Please note, the event is ticket only
